Tierney is considered to be one of the best left-backs in Scotland. The Arsenal left-back has also represented the Scotland at various youth levels before going on to secure 35 senior caps for his country thus far.

His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Newcastle United.

Eddie Howe is eager to add a left-back to the squad. He wants an experienced player that can be a leader on and off the pitch for him. The Scotland international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Howe wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Someone with Kieran Tierney’s skillset will undoubtedly add more quality to Eddie Howe‘s defense.

Howe will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this summer and the Arsenal left-back is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.

Kieran Tierney is a skilled left-back who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.

According to the report, “Newcastle United are planning a move for Kieran Tierney in the summer. The Scottish left back is out of favor at Arsenal this season, despite an impressive run of performances last term. Since the summer arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Tierney is second choice, which means he may be on the move in the summer. Per The Telegraph, Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is a huge admirer of the defender. He believes Tierney can form a key part of the team in the coming seasons. Whether Arsenal would be willing to sell to a rival who are on the up is another matter.”

The Gunners are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the left-back, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

Newcastle are showing interest in signing left-back, but will have to dig deep to land him.

Good signing for Newcastle United?

If Newcastle and Eddie Howe are seriously considering a left-back, Tierney could also prove to be a smart option.

The 25-year-old Scotland international could be a very good squad player for Eddie Howe over the next few years. He is at the peak of his career right now and Howe could bring out the best in him.

The ball is in Newcastle’s court and they need to take a decision on signing Kieran Tierney.
